According to a popular proverb, "a fly that ignores advice follows the corpse to the grave," and that is precisely what happened to these students who failed to behave properly as citizens. The rate at which capital crimes are committed by our youth has become a major source of concern in recent years.
Despite the fact that they are fully aware that committing crimes can land them in hot water and may result in a jail or death sentence, some people retain the right to commit crimes and face the wrath of the law. I've compiled a list of African students who committed capital offenses and were eventually sentenced to death under the law.
In 2018, these two young Tamale Technical University (TaTU) students were convicted of murdering 65-year-old pastor Ebenezer Ocran, who owns the End Time Bible Believers Fellowship in Tamale. Kwame and Obio were both sentenced to death by hanging by the presiding judge of the Northern Region's Tamale High Court.

This 23-year-old University of Port Harcourt student in Nigeria was arrested by police for murdering an innocent 8-year-old girl named Victory Chikamso in 2017. He admitted to murdering the innocent child for ritual purposes, defiling her before removing some of her vital organs. He escaped police custody a few days after his arrest with the assistance of a police officer, but was apprehended and sentenced to death by hanging on May 13, 2020. The police officer was also sentenced to one year in prison and was terminated following his sentence.
3. Nnamdi Achonye and Azmir
Azmir was 28 years old and Achonye was 30 years old when they committed the capital offense that landed them in hot water. Both are Nigerians, but they attend a private university in Malaysia and share a room. They got themselves into a pickle when they became involved in drug trafficking and were apprehended by security agents with 3.5 kilograms of methamphetamine in their room. They were convicted of the crime and sentenced to death by hanging in 2017.
We must learn from these young students' story to be content with what we have and to not let others' success distract us from being ourselves.
Do you believe they deserved to be hanged? Your opinion is extremely valuable to us.
